Homemade pizza.

20.2.11

Last weekend we decided to make some pizzas and it was a lot of fun, so I took a few snaps to share with you. We cheated ever so slightly and bought 2 ready-made bases, but to make up for that we got loads of cool stuff for toppings. We weren't sure how they would turn out but they were delicious and so easy to make!


We used passata as the base on both. On our first pizza we loaded on some mozzarella cheese and a drizzle of olive oil and popped it in the oven, and added parma ham and rocket just before serving. Our second pizza consisted of cheddar cheese (lots of), mushrooms and pancetta.

They were so tasty - I can't wait to make pizza again, or maybe a calzone? Yum!

What is your favourite pizza topping? Mine is ham (proper ham) and pineapple but I have yet to find someone else who can stomach it!

  6. MMM the more cheese the merrier, I say! Ham and pineapple is my favourite! All my friends say pineapples shouldn't go on pizzas but I beg to differ. They all love pepperoni but when you see the oil on each pepperoni, it's so off-putting! x

  13. They look good!
    My favourite topping is simple - just pineapple. I'm a vegetarian, and I do sometimes like having lots of veg on mine, but most of the time I just stick to pineapple - yum! x

  14. Mmm they look lovely (minus the ham!)! You should try a spinach and ricotta calzone, I had that at a restaurant and it was gorgeous!

  15. The pizza looks tasty! I love ham and pineapple, I used to think it was weird, I mean fruit on a pizza?! But then I tried an amazing home made one and it was lovely! I can't make pizzas myself, the base always rises like a loaf of bread for me :/

  19. I like ham and pineapple pizza! I usually go for a veggie one though... lots of mushrooms and sweetcorn and peppers, etc etc. On holiday in Venice I had a really nice spinach and ricotta cheese pizza - sounds weird but actually tasty.

  21. i don't eat ham, but love pineapple on pizza, so always make my own,as you can't get shop-bought pizza with pineapple but no ham it seems!
    i'm a pineapple and sweetcorn fan !!
